Hummelstown Brownstone 

HE main office, mill, shops and quarries of the Hummelstown Brownstone 
Company are located at Waltonville, Dauphin county, Pa., about ten miles 
east of Harrisburg. 

Access to the quar- 
ries is had through 
the B. & M. Rail- 
road, which is con- 
trolled by the owners 
of the Hummelstown 
Brownstone property. The railroad consists of 
a line, extending from Brownstone, on the Leba- 
non Valley Branch of the Philadelphia and 
Reading railroad, to Waltonville, with extensive 
sidings both at Brownstone and at the quarries. 
It is equipped with four locomotives, passenger 
coaches and freight cars, used almost exclusively 
for the business of the Hummelstown Brown- 
stone Company.. 

The property of the Company includes a 
thousand acres, covering all the high-grade 

H U M M E L S T O W N B R O W N S T O N E 

hrownstonc in this section. The quarries are equipped with thirty steam derricks, one heavy- 
capacity steam shovel, three steam cable hoists, and a complete line of steam drills, (luarry chan- 
nelcrs and other quarrying tools. 

Ihc mill and stone-dressing shops (see pages 9, 12 and 13; also pages 24, 25, 38 and 39, show- 

:cncral view of mill) contain thirteen gangs of saws, fourteen stone planers and two stone 

i.iiiic^. The hoisting about the mill and shop is done by two heavy - capacity steam traveling cranes. 

'I'he c.ip.u itv of the iiuarries is practically unlimited, having always been able to meet every 

demand. ^ c or (juantity can be supplied, and the promptness and certaint\ with 

which orders have l)een tilled have contributed in no small degree to tlic success of the Company. 

The growth ot the stone industry at W al' 
tonville has been steady, rapid and substantial. 
Near the Hrowiistone station is .m old roatl- 
wagon crumbling to pieces. it is not so ver\ 
many years since all the ^lone shipped from 
W'altonvillc was hauled on thi^ old wagon. 
To-day the forest of derricks, the mile^ of rail- 
• ly sidings and railway tracks to the (iiffereni 
openings, the mass of machinery and the multi- 
tude of workmen, tell an interesting ^torv of 
industrial progress. 

\N Ink- HummeKtown Hrowfi^lone 1^ pre- 
cminenils a l)ui]ding st<Mie, it is also used 


other bridges. This one, however, is as substantial as when 

that it is an all - stone bridge, the arch 

as well as the abutments being built of 

Hummelstown Brownstone. A supply of 

bridge stone is always kept on hand and 

can be furnished in all sizes and in any 

quantity, at any time. 

Hummelstown Brownstone is used for 
all classes of w^ork for which any rock may 
be used, but it is preeminently a building 
stone — one of the most valuable, and 
adapted to many different structural pur- 
poses. The stone combines in high degree 

extensively for bridges, piers and 
abutments. One of the earliest 
stone railroad bridges built in this 
country is shown on this page. 
It was built in 1850, entirely of 
Hummelstown Brownstone. Since 
that date the increased weight of 
engines and loaded cars has com- 
pelled the reconstruction of many 
built. It is worthv of note also 

H U M M E L S T O W N B R O W N S T O N E 

all the best qualities of building stone — strength, durability, comparative ease in working, and per- 
manency of color. The product of the Hummelstown Brovvnstone Company is the most widely 
and favorably known of the Pennsylvania building stones, and has a high place among the best 
known and handsomest building stones of the country. It is " remarkably uniform both in texture and 
color, probably unsurpassed in this property by any brownstone in the United States, certainly not by 
any that occurs in similarly large quantities, so far as observed by the writer." — State Report, page 5/. 
"In large cities and in manufacturing towns, particularly those where bituminous coal is the 

principal fuel, light stones should ahvays be 
avoided, and for such localities a red or 
brown silicious sandstone is the most endur- 
ing and permanent, and next to this comes 
granite.'' — Kidder on Building Cons/ rmt ion, 
page 140. 

The Tenth Census, vol. 10, page 156, 
says: "One of the principal (]uarries in 
Pennsylvania on rocks of this age i^ iU 
Hummelstown. Dauphin county, a tew 
miles east of Harrisburg. The material 
here is a brown, massi\'e sandstone of a 
uniform and medium texture, and is (]uar- 
ried for caps, sills, trimmings, bases, steps 
and other building purpose;. It ha^ been 

H U M M E L S T O W N BR O \V \ S T O N F 

much used in Philadelphia, Harris- 
burg, Willianisport, Pottsville, Read- 
ing, Lancaster, York, Richmond, 
Baltimore, Washington and other 
cities of the east. '•' '•'■ '•' Blocks 
of as large size as are desirable 
may be taken out." 


The Hummelstown Brown- 
stone has been in local use for 
more than two hundred years. 
Tombstones made of it, dating 
back to the earlier years of 1700, 
are to be seen in the ancient 
cemetery near the quarry. They 
have weathered perfectly. The 
Berst house (see page 12), also on the quarry property, was built in the year iHoo, and the barn 
adjoining was built in 1809. Both are of Hummelstown Brownstone, and in neither is there a 
sign of old age. The tool marks are as clear and well defined as they were when the buildings 
were erected. These buildings adjoin the quarries, and are examined with great interest bv visitors,

H U M M E L S T () W N B R O W N S T O N E 

The State Report on Brownstones, 
speaking of the Berst house, says: "The 
stone shows no sign of decay or discolor- 
ation." The Census of 1880 says: "The 
Hummelstovvn Brownstone, the hardest and 
most compact of all these brownstones, 
has been introduced here (Philadelphia) 
within the last fifteen years. This stone 
as vet shows no evidence of disintegration 

in any of the buildings in which it has been used, 
and has the reputation of being quite substantial 
and durable." 


From the standpoint of color, hrouii^tonc is the 
best of building stones. This is not only because 
of the beauty and richness of the color, but also 


because of what is of the highest importance in architecture, the permanency of the color. There 
is not another color common among building stones as little liable to tarnish as brown. The 
Berst house was mentioned as an illustration of the durability of the stone. It is no less a 
magnificent illustration of the permanency of the color of the stone. The State Report on 
Brovvnstone says: ''In some brownstone buildings that have been standing nearly 169 years the 
stone is as bright as w^hen it first came from the quarry. ''^ * '*'" The inherent beauty and 
permanency in the color, together with its desirability in combination with stones of other colors 

for architectural effect, will always cause a de- 
'^ * -^'-^!^ mand for brownstone by the best architects.'' 

Ratio of Absorption

The Pennsylvania State College test, 
made in 1897, gives the ratio of absorption 
for Hummelstown Brownstone as 1-37. 

The physical and chemical composition 


of a stone has much to do with its durability. When composed largely of silica and well cemented, 
sandstones are as resistant to the weather as granite, and far less affected by the action of fire. 


The analysis given below shows the chemical composition of the Hummelstown Brownstone. 
It was made in the chemical laboratory of Pennsylvania State College.

^^^^ " Experiments made with the Govern- 

'^ " ^^^ ment testing machine at Watertown, Mass., 

1882 and 1883, gave 700 tons per square 
foot ultimate crushing load for blue marble 



from Montgomery county, Pa.; 500 for 
limestone from Indiana; 840 for red sand- 
stone from Hummelstown, Pa.; 260 to 1,000 
for yellow Ohio sandstone." — Trautnjcine, 

In a list of tests on 62 specimens of 
the best known sandstones of the United 
States, including brownstones, given bv 
General Gillmore in 1875, there are 17 
with a strength below 6,000, 43 below 
9,000 and 49 below 10,000 pounds per 
square inch. 

United States Government tests made 
at Watertown arsenal, and similar tests 
made at State College and Rose Poly- 
technic Institute indicate that Hummelstown Brownstone has a crushing strength of from 13,000 
to 15,000 pounds per square inch. What this means may be seen when it is known that the 
maximum pressure on the masonry of the Brooklyn Bridge is about 400 pounds per square inch, 
and the maximum pressure on the masonry of the Washington Monument, at Washington, D. C, 
the highest work of masonry in the world, is 280 pounds to the square inch. 

The texture of Hummelstown Brownstone is very fine and even, and this renders it 
particularly well adapted for handsome carving. Details of carving, pages 40 and 41. 


H U M M E L S T () W N H R O W N S T O N E 

The stone is composed of fine angular quartz grains well cemented, and, as Professor Hopkins 
reports, "both the chemical and mineralogical composition leave little to be desired in that line.'* — 

State Report, pa [re 55. 


Fire Resistance 

"The ability of a stone to with^tami the action 
of fire is often of much conset]uence, especially 
when it is exposed to fire risks 011 all sides, as is 
the case with most business blocks. Of the differ- 
ent kinds of stone used for building, the t(»mpact, 
fine -grain sandstones withstand the action of hre 
■^^ (iitr best; limestones and marl)les suffer the worst 

(becoming calci-ned under an intense heat), and 
granites are intermediate. The best sandstones 
generally come out uninjured, except for the dis- 
coloration caused by smoke." — Ktdder^ on Building Construction, page IdS- 

A marked point of superiority of the Hummelstown Brownstonc was shown in the fire test 
made at State College, as described in the appended extract from the State Report (page 1,2): 
"When specimens of various sandstones and the oolitic limestone from Indiana, were heated until 
aluminum melted on the upper surface, about 1,157 degrees Fahrenheit, the limestones showed traces 


H U M M E L S T O W N B R O W N S T O N E 

of calcination by a coating of lime over the surface. The Hummelstown stone was brighter 
colored, but the texture and strength seemed unchanged, showing that it withstood, without damage, 
a heat which practically destroyed other stones/' 



he Hummelstolpn "Brolvnstone commends itself as having, in a 
very high degree, all the most desirable qualities of the best building 

1. It is rich and uniform in color. 

2. It is permanent in color. 

3. It is strong and durable. 

4. It is unlimited in quantity. 

5. It is fine and uniform in texture, permitting the finest carving and 

architectural finish. 

6. It is the best stone for a fire-proof building. 

7. It does not stain or tarnish. 

8. The Hummelstown Brownstone Company has a large and well- 

equipped plant, so that the largest orders can be filled promptly 
and without delay.
